SETI@home completes the switch to BOINC
SETI@home has completed its transition to BOINC (Berkeley Open
Infrastructure for Network Computing). BOINC, developed at U.C.
Berkeley, is a framework for volunteer computing projects like

Switching your computer to the new "SETI@home/BOINC" is easy. Visit for instructions. We'll be shutting
down the "SETI@home Classic" project on December 15. The workunit
totals of users and teams will be frozen at that point, and the final
totals will be available on the web.

Scientists at other universities are using BOINC to create volunteer
computing projects in areas like molecular biology, high-energy
physics, and climate change study. See for
more information. BOINC lets you donate computer time to multiple
causes, divided up however you want. For example, your PC could spend
40% of its time searching for extraterrestrial life (SETI@home), 30%
studying climate change (, and 30%
studying protein folding, design and docking (Rosetta@home:

You can run SETI@home 100% of the time if you want. But we strongly
encourage you to participate in other projects. Doing so ensures that
when SETI@home is down or has no work, your computer stays busy
helping other researchers.

Support SETI@home
SETI@home is increasingly reliant on individual donations. Without
the support of individuals like you the project will not be able to
continue. We urge all SETI@home participants to make a yearly
donation to keep the project going:


Thanks again for your participation in [email protected]
